    DUI Checkpoints

    Many of you have mentioned the unconstitutionality of DUI Checkpoints (I agree). Wanted to make sure you saw this. I have not used it, so I cannot attest to it's value in my state or yours, but in FL at this checkpoint it worked like a charm. The first link is to a story (and video) of a guy using this method. Second link is to the "flyer" page of the FairDUI website that has flyers for many states that can be printed and used. Hard to explain, but click the links and it's easy to understand.

    Flyer | Fair DUI
    From the "is it for you" page:
    Our Fair DUI flyer is not right for everyone. You have to have a good sense of who you are and think ahead about how you’re going to handle what might happen.

    The flyer is intended for two main groups. The first are sober people who are at risk for a DUI arrest. The second are liberty activists.

    The flyer is NOT intended for drunks.
    Drunks don’t follow instructions and that makes things worse.

    By sober people at risk, we mean if you’ve had a small number of drinks within the past six hours or taken any kind of medicine or drug that may still be active in your system. If you occasionally drive after one to three drinks, or after taking any kind of drugs (including prescription and over-the-counter medications, as well as illegal drugs), the flyer may be right for you.

    If you think your driving ability isn't impaired by such behavior, then you simply aren't intelligent enough to be allowed to drive a car.

    If you can't refrain from ingesting alcohol 12 hours before driving, then perhaps you need to examine your relationship to alcohol.

    Isn't 12 hours a little excessive? I don't even think they restrict pilots to 12 hours before flying
    In an emergency individuals do not rise to the occasion, they fall to the level of their MASTERED training

    I agree with you that 12 hours is excessive.
    people like the respondent apparently have little self control or discipline, many people are capable of having a drink or 2 without becoming inebriated.

    FWIW: pilots cannot consume alcohol for at least 24 hours before flying

    DUI checkpoints do not bother me. Out where I live I see people driving that have a hard time keeping their car on the blacktop part of the road. If it stops one of them from killing me or my family, or any other people on the road it is worth it. I have been forced off the road 3 times in Dec of 2014, followed the people, called 911, but by the time the cops responded the person pulled into his driveway. Two of them was so drunk I do not know how he found the driveway.

    Those who are willing to give up freedoms for a little bit of temporary safety deserve neither freedom nor safety

    You obviously didn't bother to read the article or watch the video. You show your intelligence by posting about a "nugget" from the article that I chose to include. There is a tree somewhere producing oxygen for you and you are wasting it. I think you should find that tree and apologize.

    This is true of tsa hand groping at airports but not true in the case of getting drunk people off the roads. Your first amendment rights do not allow you to shout fire when there is none. Why is balance so hard to understand?

    What if they just stood outside the bar and breathalized you as you left to ensure you don't drive drunk? Wouldn't that be more efficient? You are an idiot.

    Personal attacks are not in the acceptable guidelines of this forum.

    Andy & Barney were not the problem. LE is not the problem, militarizing LE is the problem. Only saying AM I FREE TO GO?, through a cracked open drivers window is not the solution, it only makes things worse.
